The Must of Decision-Making

Numerous times I find truth in a statement shared by a friend. Occasionally, I find humor in a comment made by a friend. Sometime, I find both truth and humor in the same quote. It happened recently with an anonymous quote posted on Facebook: “Make a decision. The road of life is paved with flat squirrels who couldn’t make a decision.” Anyone who has driven Texas highways and backroads as I have, understands the meaning of the reference. Granted the image is a bit gross, but shockingly…

Discipleship: Imagine a Prison...

What I learned from the worst prison in Mexico:

My dear Mexican pastor friend Emilio Beltran (who has lived in the most notorious prison in Mexico for the past 6 years) handed me two Mustard Seed Foundation grant applications while we were meeting together in Reclusorio Oriente prison last month. I work for this Foundation, seeking out projects…

More than Words

 

“God is not a man, that he should lie. He is not human, that he should change his mind. Has he ever spoken, and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through”  [Numbers 23:19 NLT]

 

 

I’m sure you’ve noticed that our wordy world is filled with many basically meaningless messages. Media verbiage is…

Walk It Out

All of our lives, when lived rightly, are a journey into trust. A few days ago, I mentioned one prayer I’ve been repeatedly lifting up to God. In fact, there’s another particular prayer I’ve been praying for quite a while, and I think (and hope) that the development of this prayer has been reflected in these pages.

At first, and for a long time, it went like this: “Lord, help me to learn to trust you more deeply.” However, over the last several weeks, I’ve felt the need to add this:…

Memos from the Master

 

“You must make tassels for the hems of your clothing and attach the tassels at each corner with a blue cord.

Slowly, we are becoming the people God created us to be. Slowly, the new life Christ has in us is growing outward. However, it’s not all about waiting for things to happen. We can begin, even now, to put on our new identities in…
